Conversation is probably the most important part of a first date. Chatting over a couple of drinks will ensure the mood is relaxed and will help to dispel any inevitable first date nerves. Choose a gastropub with bags of atmosphere, so you don't feel compelled to fill every break in conversation yourself -- the last thing you want is to choose a silent place.

The other great thing about going for drinks is that the date is casually open ended -- you can easily make an excuse to keep it short if the spark just isn't there, or can go on for dinner somewhere else if you both don't want the date to end.

I think meeting for a drink or lunch is a good way to get to know someone at first without it being considered a date. Lunch to me is confusing because I would classify that as friends until further defined. It is helpful to know it is a date. An ideal date is where things are really taking off toward a potential relationship with a future, conversation is good and there is a connection. Anywhere...probably starts with dinner.
